Samsung Confirms Which Galaxy Devices Will Get A KitKat Update


Wondering whether your Galaxy device is in line for a KitKat update? Well, wonder no more. Samsung has today published a list of smartphones and tablets that are “currently scheduled” to receive an Android 4.4 upgrade, and the South Korean company says that rollout begins today.

“The upgrade provides a number of innovative, easy-to-use features that enhance the user experience, including a more intuitive user interface, enhanced messaging capabilities and updated applications,” Samsung said in its press release. And these are the devices that will get it:

  • Galaxy Note 3
  • Galaxy Note II
  • Galaxy S4
  • Galaxy S4 mini
  • Galaxy S4 Active
  • Galaxy S4 zoom
  • Galaxy Mega
  • Galaxy Grand
  • Galaxy Express
  • Galaxy Light
  • Galaxy Note 8.0
  • Galaxy Tab 3
  • Galaxy Note 10.1
  • Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition

Of course, some of these devices have already received a KitKat update — such as the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3 — but those that haven’t should be getting them soon. “Availability varies by carrier and product, with updates beginning today and continuing throughout the coming months,” the press release reads.
